Former Chief of Naval Staff, Vice Admiral Samuel Afolayan (retd.), in his interview with Success Nwogu of PUNCH NG lamented his frustration in getting justice following constant destruction of his farmland by herdsmen. He laments,


'My experience has been extremely bad. I have suffered untold and monumental losses to the destructive activities of herdsmen. Two hectares out of the hectares of cocoa that I experimented with, at the confluence of the river at each edge of my farm, was completely burnt when the trees had fruits growing on them..'

He goes on to talk about the threat to the life of the Seriki Fulani of the local government where his farm was burnt by herdsmen. He says,

'They burnt 45 hectares of my 500 hectares of land. Right in the main farm, about 2000 fruit - bearing orange trees were burnt. The cassava that I was supposed to use for garri because we process garri in my farm, which was due for harvesting this year, out of 50 hectares of cassava in my farm, we did not harvest a single tuber. I carried the Divisional Police Officer in my area, Mr Aliu Umar, along in all these incidents. He is aware because we visited the farm together. The Seriki Fulani of my Local Government Area is also a witness to this. I learnt that they were threatening his life'

Furthermore, he talked about those behind the Herdsmen Saga and their location. You can read more of the interview by clicking the link below
